11. Miscellaneous cfg file parameters
There are a number of parameters that can be set
manually in the .cfg file:
- Minimum trim airspeed setting (Min_Trim_AirSpeed_E,
_A & _R). (V1.210+)
This sets the minimum airspeed that will apply to the trim force
calculations for each control axis. If the actual airspeed drops
below this value the specified min value will be used. This
allows an always-on component of trim force to be specified,
even when the aircraft is at rest.
Value is in Knots and must be set manually in the .cfg file in
the relevant axis section (eg [Elevator], [Aileron] or [Rudder]
- Position feed to FSX - WFS_Inhibit in
Set =1 to inhibit the flight control position feed to FSX/X-Plane
when the system is in pot-less mode.
This allows pot-less mode to be active in the CL system and
cards, whilst allowing standard joystick card pots to be used
for the main flight control position inputs if required.
- Section [Show_Conts] - Show_Conts
window position indicator bar inverts.
This section contains 6 parameters which can be set to invert
the movement of the flight control position indicator bars in
the Show_Conts window. Probably of most interest is the invert
settings for the trims, they can be used to your preferred
direction for trim indication.
For details see a recent default cfg file.
- Section [Setup] Use_FSTrim - various
Use_FSTrim=0 - default GA operating mode, CL trims active, FSX
trims should be disabled
Use_FSTrim=1 - Use the CL trim inputs to drive FSX internal
trim, CL trim forces are disabled. FSX trim inputs should be
Use_FSTrim=2 - FSX trim is active using its own trim inputs - CL
trim is disabled. See Section 7.2
Use_FSTrim=3 - Experimental X-Plane mode - CL system drives
flight controls as A/P servo, A/P control actions read from
external BFF A/P software. CL system drives X-Plane trim
indicators - X-Plane aircraft modified to inhibit trim effects
on flight motions. This allows X-Plane trim indications to be
retained whilst giving CL system trim and A/P control. Flight
control positions are always consistent in and out of A/P
control - so A/P disengage is smooth in GA mode.
Use_FSTrim=4 - as for =3 above, but instead BFF A/P software
controls aircraft directly via XPUIPC, and CL system position
follows the A/P control actions. Probably a more robust
Use_FSTrim = 10 - Heavy Jet Mode 1 - See
Use_FSTrim=-1 - Default GA mode, but also write CL trims
positions to custom FSUIPC offsets - allows them to be then read
by 3rd party application to drive external trim indicators. See
